During december I have been doing a knit along through ravelry. The pattern is the advent calendar scarf 2011 by Kristin Benecken. Each day of december a new lace pattern is put up on the site and off we knit. I had thought this would be a great idea to have a new lace pattern to knit each day, but I forgott to factor in how busy the month has become.
I started two days late, then i thought I would be able to catch up but it has not happened. But I still live in hope of catching up. I have learnt some new stitches and love knitting lace, even though some of the patterns have been a learning curve and I have learnt that I do need quiet to knit lace.
I will post more photos as I go. So far I am up to day 14 and I will just continue slowely. I wont have it finished by christmas but that is OK with me.
My life revolves around dogs, family and the change of the weather. You will find me knitting, walking or wondering why nothing much grows in my garden when we have no soil, plenty of rocks and wildlife that loves the plants I try to grow.
I guess you could say that I wish there was more time for me to do and make all those exciting things out there in the world or maybe it is just my inability to use my time wisely. Oh and there is never enough time to read all those books. I really love learning new things, making new things and learning from others. you can find me as bishopstone on ravelry.
